  2. Keep it (relatively) clean.
  3. You can link to your entry in the comments section (if you have a flickr account or any other image hosting site).All entries should be in by Feb 12, 2008. On Feb 14th, Elyse and I will post our top four choices and you, the readers can pick the winner!

The prize for this contest: The winner will receive a custom avatar drawn by me! (If you have no idea what kind of art I draw, here is a link:

  1. Yay, I'm so excited to see what people come up with! I totally snorted at the example.

    edited to add: in fact, the example is so funny you should put a little version above the fold so people see. Hee hee!

  2. Hey Ben, if you have a flickr account or any other image hosting site account, you could upload the picture there, and then put a link here in the comments, that way everyone can view your entry. I can't want to see what you've come up with!
